You don’t want to leave any room for a disgruntled employee to find something to sue over. There are several things that you can do to minimize the chance of this happening.
Employment law is a very complex area of focus. You have to be familiar with many laws and codes to properly protect your company. Setting up the code of conduct for your employees must not have anything that is going to violate laws like those against discrimination or the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
You have to ensure that you have protocol in place to handle situations that are violations of the law. For example, your workers need to know what to do if they are victims of sexual harassment. You should have a response person or team set up to handle those complaints.
